from our economy, particularly for hispanics and african-americans. >> dana, the stock market is at a five-time high -- a five-year high. unemployment is at a five-year low. he says on the one hand he wants to reach out. you can see the shares in the dow jones right now. what is this man talking about? please, translate it because i'm not intelligent enough to understand it. >> there is apparently a bit of a mixed message occurring at the rnc winter meeting. >> in the very brain of the chairman. >> i think bobby jindal had a point where he said we need to stop being the party of austerity. we need to stop saying how good we can be at shrinking and cutting government. that is not a winning message. he's absolutely right about that. and then you have the party here in washington doing exactly what he said not to do, and you have paul ryan coming forward and saying, yes, i'm going to -- we lost the election so i'm actually going to double down on this. i'm going to cut 40% of the federal government out over the next ten years because that's exactly what the people want to hear an

having about the fiscal cliff and the debt ceiling. the american economy somebody very important to the global economy. we cannot have the kind of nonsense we've had going on in the building behind me and think that that's going to be either good foreign policy or economic policy for around the globe, not just here at home. i think he was trying to remind people we do live in a global economy. it is interconnected and that that does impact our foreign policy and our defenses. >> it clearly does. michael, the outgoing secretary of state said, and i'm quoting her, we are facing a spreading hi hjihadist threat across nort africa. is it your view that the attack on the consulate in libya, the hostage taking at that gas plant in algeria, and the conflict in mali mean that north africa is now the main front for islamic terrorism and how does a new secretary of state confront this? >> great question. i don't know that i would say it's the main front, but it is certainly a serious front and a serious set of interlocked issues. one thing we have to debate on libya, because i've been perp

, everything. he had one of the worst economies in many, many years. he had all kinds of catastrophes and people forget about the bp spill, forget about the economy, they forget about all the jobs we were losing, forget about the unemployment rate at the time he was running for office. but yet and still -- and don't forget voter suppression, voter suppression, all kinds of efforts to strike out early voting, and yet and still he still had a tremendous victory. and i think that was reaffirming. it really was because i think it made a lot of people feel that, first of all, americans got it, they understood what he had gone through, they wanted to reward him for his effort, but more important than that, martin, they saw where he was going, and it wasn't where they were, where they are. they saw where they were going and that's very significant. >> and so you think it was about the sense of his determination and aspiration in a particular direction that drove this campaign. >> no doubt about it. they were inspired by his aspirations. it's not always you getting it. if they see you on cour

to increase the rights of people or to strengthen the safety net or to rev up the economy would take issue at this and not like this speech. this was a sort ideological speech. i don't remember any of these people, anyone on the conservative commentary, decrying ronald reagan's speeches when he put out conservative principles. the government is the problem, not the solution, and gave a point of view. so, i mean, it's really i think hypocrisy on their side saying, oh, my god, the president is sharing his values with us. that's what he was doing. i think it was very bold and very well-put, and this is what we have been fighting about for the last four years. it's what we will continue to fight about for the next four years. i thought one key point to the president's speech was, he said, listen, guys, talking to his core constituency groups, i can't do this on my own. you have to be engaged and we have to come up and win the best, sometimes partial victories we can because this is a 400-year long march that we're engaged in. >> i want you both to listen to the great senator mitch mcconnell wh

's not into austerity. he wants to grow the economy. he keeps saying this. >> he also doesn't want a culture of dependency. i think if you ask the average kindergarten child whether or not he or she should help his or her friend in any way, shape, or form, they get how we help each other. this one particular case of sandy, i thought americans helped each other during time of need. you ask a kindergartner, they know how to act. why can't members of congress do the same? >> that was incredible. let me play you another clip from his "meet the press" interview where he was asked what he learned from losing in 2012. listen to this. >> what do you think the party should learn from the loss? >> well, we obviously have to expand our appeal. we have to expand our appeal to more people and show how we'll take the country's founding principles and apply them to the problems of the day to offer solutions to fix our problems. >> that's just complete gibberi gibberish, isn't it? what is he talking about? >> i don't know. i think what he's really trying to do is appeal to common sense americans, but, again
